Autodromo’s updated Group B is the Evo 2 rally car of the watch world
Commonly regarded as the last truly romantic era of motorsport, Group B rallying had it all: snarling and ultra-powerful cars built to essentially boundless rules, fearless and charismatic heroes willing to lay their lives down on every stage, and the world’s most challenging terrain, ranging from the snow-covered serpentines of Sweden to the dust-stifling and searing dunes of the desert.
And it’s the spirit of Group B that the original Autodromo Group B captured so well back in 2015, helping it to really resonate with car lovers and the watch community alike. The American brand has now introduced a Series 2 model, which retains the slim and stylish 39.5mm steel and titanium case, automatic Miyota movement, and the oh-so-1980s dial designs, yet features a new interchangeable stainless-steel bracelet that appears to integrate with the case. Once again, there’s a special ‘Night Stage’ edition, with a black and green grid style dial. The Autodromo Group B Series 2 is now available for the pre-order, priced at 975 US dollars.
